Which Airlines Containerize Cargo On Their 32X?

Thu Sep 28, 2000 8:32 am

Of the few airlines I've seen take advantage of the 32X's admittedly smaller cargo containers (like Swissair), most simply fill them up with suitcases.

How many airlines really take advantage of the Airbus 32X's ability to haul a significant load of cargo and how does a full cargo load affect the aircraft operationally (range, etc.).

LH does, 18% of their LD´s are flown by A320.

I'm guessing 32X can fly normally with full pax + cargo in Europe since most intra-European routes do not stretch the range of the plane at all.

What about elsewhere in the world?

Is it true that the Airbus 32X carries a full-width (not full-height) container?
It is called the 'AKH' if I'm not mistaken. How many AKH can it hold?

My numbers are from LH-inflight magazine, since LH operates it´s A320 only Euro-wide, I am not informed about the counts from other operators.
But interresting anyway.

Sorry about my previous post. I was formatting this table that a friend sent me when I hit the send button by mistake 

Anyways, if it helps, the four numbers represent "Number of Aircraft", "CLS" (Containerised Loading System), "Convertability" and "Pure Bulk" loading.

I hope it helps more than confuses
